I think it's time that I reveal something. Something that I probably should've made clear at the start of this trip so you could've kept a running tab of what I wanted to accomplish in my two weeks in Europe. Something I like to call "a bucket list." Take a look at where things stand nine days in:
- Properly pronounce Polish names.
Sit right in the middle of a supporters' section. Watch Spain play in person.
- Go to a topless beach.
- Try to eat Kielbasa like Kobayashi eats hot dogs.
Get pulled over by the police in a foreign country and try to unsuccessfully talk my way out of it. Watch the sun come up over the Baltic Sea at 4 a.m.
- Sing "I've Had The Time Of My Life" from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack with the locals at a karaoke bar in Ukraine.
